Introduction to Simulate ONTAP


Simulate ONTAP is a simulator for running Data ONTAP software. It enables you to test the features of Data ONTAP 7-Mode or Cluster-Mode without having to buy new hardware or disturb your production environment. Simulate ONTAP is a VMware virtual machine that runs in a hypervisor. You can run Simulate ONTAP on either a Windows or a Mac system.

Supported VMware applications


You can install Simulate ONTAP only on certain VMware applications. You need to install one of the following VMware applications on the host system to use Simulate ONTAP: VMware Workstation VMware Player VMware vSphere VMware Fusion

Limitations and unsupported features


Simulate ONTAP supports most Data ONTAP functionality and the majority of its features. However, Simulate ONTAP has some functional limitations and does not support some Data ONTAP features because of the virtualization architecture. Simulate ONTAP has the following limitations: Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM) is simulated and is not persistent. Data loss might occur after power cycles. You must shut down the simulator properly to avoid data loss. You can have a maximum of four simulated disk shelves with 14 disk drives per shelf, for a total of 56 drives per simulator. Each simulated drive is limited to 9 GB (with Data ONTAP 8.1.1 or greater), 4 GB (with Data ONTAP 8.1.0), or 1 GB (with Data ONTAP 8.0.x or earlier).
Note: The simulator image comes pre-configured with 28 1 GB disks; 14 each on simulated disk shelves 0 and 1. Simulated disk shelves 2 and 3 are not populated. You can configure up to a maximum of 220 GB total space for each Simulate ONTAP node.

You can create 64-bit aggregates, but they are limited to a maximum of 9 GB per simulated disk drive.
